Liberalism and Constitutional Decision Making

  • Martin van Hees
Part of the Law and Philosophy Library book series (LAPS, volume 23)


In this chapter we examine principles of constitutional decision making, that is, decision making about, among other things, the way society makes its decisions.1 In particular, constitutional decision making is about the question of how rights and liberties should be allocated. The purpose of this chapter is to show that our framework enables us to answer this question from a liberal point of view. That is, we formulate and analyse liberal principles of constitutional decision making; principles which attach a predominant impor­tance to the protection of individual freedom.2
